German Wirehaired Pointer Breeders:

The German Wirehaired Pointer Club of America has a list of breeders. Some of these are field trial breeders and some are show dog only breeders.


The German Wirehair Alliance is a loosely organized group of excellent wirehair breeders who are breeding with purpose for promoting versatile wirehairs that have good coats and strong hunting genetics.

All of the breeders in the alliance adhere to alliance breeding standards and many will have available wirehair pups.
